Psychiatry Student Interest Group

The Psychiatry Student Interest Group (PsychSIG) provides educational opportunities for students interested in psychiatry and seeks to educate the broader Columbia University Irving Medical Center community about mental health care issues. We do this by connecting students with professional mentors and shadowing opportunities. Our group is also affiliated with the Psychiatry Student Interest Group Network (PsychSIGN), which offers resources for students.

Group Resources

Current Columbia medical students qualify for free memberships offered by national psychiatry organizations. These memberships come with helpful resources.
